thanks. I did know that splitty travellers had the shorter bonnet?
No they didn't - I think that your post has a typo, given the question mark at the end of the statement. The Short Bonnet was only on Side-valve engined cars and the Traveller (Utility Vehicle) wasn't introduced until the merger with Austin. The photo of the blue "transitional" traveller shows a car with a fake centre screen strut - the car has a one-piece post October 1956 windscreen.
The short bonnet was deleted in mid-1951. My signature shows a short-bonnet high-light and my August 1956 built Traveller (with long bonnet). All my cars are Split-screen, including the newest acquisition of a June 1950 low-light (not yet in the sig picture).
'50 Low-light with 918 Side-valve engine,
'51 High-light with Side-valve 918 engine,
'55 4-dr with 803 engine,
'56 Traveller with 1098 engine.
